Error in burning bootloader to Atmega328P || NEED HELP!!!

  • i brought an ATmega328P MCU with arduino bootloader.And programmed it few times. Worked without any error. But, once i tried to upload a program to it, it won't upload. and i checked the blinking of 13 rd pin won't blinking when reset. So, i thought bootloader is missing and tried to upload bootloader. But get some error. Help please. Error message given below

             Double check chip, or use -F to override this check.
    avrdude done.  Thank you.

    when i connect an external supply during bootloader burning the device signature shows as 0x00ff00. and when i connect power to ic from arduino uno 5v pin the device signature is 0x000000😕 😕 😕

    In simple way to say your Atmega328p is damaged somehow don't know what happened exactly but you know what's last thing you have done with it...
    If you have external USBASP programmer then use sinaprog software and ARDUINO ISP programming.. use this software and just check wether it indentify your atmega328p or not...if not then surely you damaged it...
    Also first thing to check is disconnect your atmega328p from Arduino and join the RX TX pins by jumper and open serial monitor and type anything and you will echo back what you have typed.. if yes then sure your atmega328p is damaged if no then your serial is crashed but may be your mcu is working but uno can't program by serial pins...

    If you might think that reset is no happened then check reset pin by manually resetting by gnd to reset jumper willingly to do repeated might seem 13 led blinks if not then sure mcu is damaged...

    One another thing or you can say tweak is to renew your mcu by luck of chance doing this...

    Use breadboard..
    Remove your atmega328p from board
    Give a 16Mhz crystal externally
    Connect external reset capacitor and resistor with reset circuit..
    Give VCC and ground...
    Connect reset properly..
    If you have usb external programmer then connect it with ISP pins to atmega328p and now check it whether it identify it or not...
    You can use uno board also with direct RX TX pins + reset pin + external crystal may you try it..

    If all fails go to market and buy new atmega328p or UNO

  • @shahidpk
    Also if may possible that you change the programmer type.. just check it correctly configured or not..
    I forget to say this..

  • If you are using raspberry pi as one of your main computers and have separate monitor, keyboard and mouse, then you might be tired of copy and pasting terminal commands and codes while doing projects with raspberry pi, because running chromium-browser and reading tutorial will pi slower and using a sperate keyboard and mouse use our workbench space too.

    recently I read a blog Share your keyboard and mouse between computers with Barrier by Gordon Hollingworth which is cool.

    In that blog, he mentioned a software called barrier, it's a software that will allow you to use a single keyboard and mouse to control multiple computers by physically turning a dial on the box to switch the machine you're controlling at any given moment. The barrier does this in software, allowing you to tell it which machine to control by moving your mouse to the edge of the screen, or by using a keypress to switch focus to a different system.

    Follow these to share your computer keyboard and mouse with the raspberry pi

    First, we need setup raspberry pi

    Step 1: Download and Install Raspberry Pi OS on SD Card

    Step 2: Connect raspberry pi to the wi-fi network

    Step 3: Install barrier, for that open your terminal (Ctrl + T) and paste or enter the following

    sudo apt install barrier

    Then click enter.

    Step 4: Setup barrier, Open barrier by typing barrier on the terminal, if you successfully installed the barrier you can see like this.


    Select option Client (Use another computer's mouse and keyboard) and Select Auto config option too, also note the Screen name, which we need for the server.

    That's all next we need to set up the desktop/laptop computer.

    Step 5: Download and Install barrier on desktop or laptop computer (The Server), download link

    Step 6: Set up the barrier by selecting Server and position your monitor on barrier software. 004.png

    To Position, the screen clicks the configure server.


    Here, to drag and drop the monitor icon to the desired position you need on the grid.


    double click the screen and set the screen name, you can obtain the screen name from the raspberry pi barrier client. (See Step 4)


    after setup, it should be like this. Then click OK


    in the following screen, click Apply and Just wait few seconds then try to move the mouse to the corner. Yes, It should work.
